Surfactant

 

Abbreviation for surface-active agent; soluble compound that reduces the surface tension of liquids, or reduces interfacial tension between two liquids or a liquid and a solid.

Are organic molecules, which have two ends with different polarities, and can serve as a capping or protecting agent for nanoparticles against external forces.

A surface active agent. Surfactants adsorb easily on surfaces and in the case of a liquid as substrate they reduce the surface tension. Detergents or cleaning agents are prominent examples. They reduce the surface tension of the water resulting in a better cleaning ability or wetting property.

Surface-active molecules that reduce the surface tension between two liquids. Surfactants are used in many detergents as a dispersant between oil and water

Short for 'surface active agent' - a surfactant is a molecule that lowers suface tension.
